Leicestershire Textiles – Shaping the Future Workshop

On Monday 16th May 2016 the LLEP team, in partnership with the Leicester City Council, hosted the ‘Leicestershire Textiles – Shaping the Future’ workshop. The workshop involved discussion on the proposed actions outline in our Sector Growth Plan. The aim of this event was to encourage collaboration between textile businesses, provide information on funding options and shape the future of Leicestershire Textiles. As part of the growth plan certain key activities and actions were recommended to support the anticipated growth in the Textiles Sector and secure Leicestershire’s position as the central destination for UK textiles and garment production.
